More about NRT and Lewa
Today, NRT and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy have separate identities - in that Lewa is a private wildlife conservancy and NRT is an umbrella organisation for community conservancies - but still benefit from a close working relationship. NRT’s central headquarters are based at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which is now owned as a Kenyan trust. Lewa plays a key role in providing logistical support to NRT. A joint operations centre enables NRT and Lewa security teams to share information with the Kenya Police and Kenya Wildlife Service on wildlife poaching and livestock theft, and share resources when needed. The two organisations also share a wildlife vet, seconded by the Kenya Wildlife Service, who is responsible for assisting sick or injured (mainly endangered) species in Lewa and the NRT conservancies.
